P1 AquaX

AquaX is the fastest growing personal watercraft championship in the world. Its rapid growth is owed to a simple, yet challenging race format that appeals to today’s personal watercraft users.

This year the program will include the unveiling of a professional level race series and expansion of two further championships in the Great Lakes region of the USA and in Southeast Asia.

Eric Francis

P1 aqx Pro Racer


Eric has been racing since the ripe age of 14. He joined AquaX USA for its final round in 2013 and rapidly shot to the P1 AquaX world number 1 - a position he has held for eighteen months. He continues to fight for the winning position, coming third in the most recent season. Eric is also the captain of Team Kawasaki.

"I ran accross some racers practicing on buoys at a local lake. I went up and spoke to them about it and by the next weekend I had a helmet and gloves and the rest is history."


Panama City for its' beauty and tough conditions. But this year it changed to Eric's hometown Lake Worth.

last season

"Last season proved to be one of the best learning experiences as many of the best riders from around the world came to Aquax and made the competition stronger than it had ever been before. I will admit i struggled early on keeping pace but by the end of the season i was back on pace if not setting a harder pace than anyone else."


In the next few years Eric can see himself being right at the top of AquaX with his wife (Sophie Francis) right by his side! Sophie is predicted to be a strong competitor with her passion and progress in full force.


Eric spends most of his nights repairing pinball machines! He buys, sells and collects them all year long, with most of his winter being spend fixing up the ones he has bought.
